Goal: Solidify your topic idea
1. TIB essay readings
Respond to this rhetoric in at least 100 words.
Questions to consider: How does this man's performance make you feel? How does his poem relate to Stop and Frisk? Does he change your mind or affirm your opinion on Stop and Frisk? Ultimately, is his message effective? (What needs to be true about the audience for this message to be effective?)
3. Look at the exhibition prep calendar and enter the op-ed draft for peer critique and exhibition dates into your calendar (this can be found in the op-ed project resources google doc folder)
4. Mini lesson: Introduce opposing viewpoint analysis and research handout (this can be found in the project google doc folder as can ALL exhibition prep documents!!)
5. WORK TIME
To encourage more frequent checking of my DP (for no other reason than to offer you an awe-inspiring aesthetic experience as my DP is stunning) I will sporadically throw some E.C. points your way.
SO, 2 points E.C. to those who, by 8:14 Wednesday morning, email me a funny yet appropriate youtube video that is less than 2 minutes long.
Today's fishbowl seminar
1. Go over the Fishbowl Seminar instructions
Federal Judge Shira Scheindlin rules: "In their zeal to defend a policy that they believe to be effective, [New York Police] have willfully ignored overwhelming proof that the policy of targeting 'the right people' is racially discriminatory and therefore violates the United States Constitution."
Round 2: Follow-up questions
1. Which constitutional amendments does it violate?
2. What are the most persuasive pieces of rhetorical evidence in support of your position? You must cite one example of pathos, ethos and logos and explain how it is pathos, ethos or logos.
3. Which moral philosophy (Libertarianism, Deontology, Rawls’ Justice as Fairness or Utilitarianism) would support your position and why?
NOTE: All documents for today's class and the rest of project work time can be found in the Morality and Politics of Justice project google doc folder, which is located on my projects page.
